Ed & Matt created a visual wonderland for their slack-jawed onlookers...

It was a near mob scene this Saturday nite in LA art enclave of Culver City when ED TEMPLETON and MATT LEINES unveiled their joint show, "Map of the Inner War"/“The Great Gates of Zenith” at ROBERTS & TILTON GALLERY. For “Map of the Inner War,” Ed Templeton literally saturated the main gallery with over 250 new highly personal works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper all documenting his life, and the lives of the people around him. For the inspiringly-named “The Great Gates of Zenith” in the gallery’s project room, Matt Leines has once again visualized a futuristic world populated by his own pantheon of mythological creatures that would look quite at home in the story books of ancient Mesopotamia. A veritable who’s who of the LA underground turned up during the standing room only event, which was one of the absolute high points of this year’s LA art calendar.
